Washington, D.C. –  The American Conservative Union (ACU) Political Action Committee (PAC) today announced its endorsement of Jeff Bell for the vacant US Senate seat representing New Jersey.  
“ACU PAC is pleased to endorse Jeff Bell. Jeff has devoted his life to advancing conservative ideas and he will bring that leadership ability and knowledge to the U.S. Senate.  Whether working with Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp, heading up the Manhattan Institute or working with the American Principles Project, Jeff Bell has been a leader in fostering creative conservative solutions to our nations’ problems. Bell stands in stark contrast to the incumbent, Cory Booker, who is content to follow the liberal line in the Senate set by Harry Reid and spend time with his friends from Hollywood.  ACU PAC urges all conservatives to support Jeff Bell in the Republican Primary on June 3 and again in November,” said ACU Director of Government Relations Larry Hart.

The ACU Political Action Committee is the political arm of the American Conservative Union, the nation’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization. The committee supports candidates for office who reflect the conservative principles on which ACU was founded. The goals of the ACU PAC are to increase the number of quality candidates who share our commitment to conservative principles and to protecting and advancing the fiscal, social and security priorities of the Reagan era. These funds are utilized in conjunction with endorsements and public announcements to communicate our support for chosen candidates to their constituents and conservatives across the nation.

The ACU recently announced its 2013 Ratings of Congress, the 43rd edition of the conservative ratings guide. For more information on the ACU PAC or to download the full 2013 Ratings of Congress, please visit
